We start at one of the country’s tallest and most photogenic urban windmills, before exploring the city’s most multicultural neighbourhood, the Dapperbuurt. This is Lee’s home turf, and includes a truly local street market with products reflecting the diversity of the residents. We will then stroll through the gorgeous Oosterpark to discuss several moving artworks relating to the area’s history.
Lee is a Dutch-Canadian who's worked as a professional guide and boat captain since 2009. Originally trained as a ballet dancer, she left the stage to travel the world, having visited over 100 countries so far, dancing, teaching and volunteering along the way. Among her most memorable experience was an extended tour through North Korea! As much as she loves exploring different cultures around the globe, she's just as happy at home in her favourite city, and can't wait to share with Heygoers all the reasons why Amsterdam is so amazing! Having joined countless tours along her travels and having led over 3,500 tours of her own, Lee has learned what makes a tour unforgettable . Her tours are carefully researched and not only cover detailed Dutch history and culture, but also fun facts, hidden gems, and tips on where to find the best shops, markets and food!
Get ready for something special. We’re travelling to Amsterdam with no passport, no plane ticket and no luggage. And yet you’ll experience all the sights, sounds and stories with just your laptop, favorite snack and an amazing content creator.
The tour will last about 45 mins and will be live-streamed by your content creator directly from Amsterdam. Forget about slideshows or pre-recorded videos, this is a live broadcast and anything can happen!
While on the tour you’ll be able to see a full screen video of your content creator and their surroundings, interact with them and other travellers through the live chat, see where you are in the world on a map and show your appreciation with a tip.
We are running these tours on a tip-supported basis to make them as accessible as possible. They are free to join, but you have the option to leave a tip during the tour.
The majority of your tip goes directly to support the channel, while the rest helps Heygo continue to build a place that brings the world closer together.
Reserve your spot by selecting a time to book. Once done, you’ll be able to see your reservations on your Trips page and we’ll send you an email confirmation with a link to join the tour.

Our residents enjoyed watching people cycle round the city. Which lead to the gents chatting about their cycling days as youths.

Always enjoy tours with Lee in The Netherlands. She knows her stuff and has a light hearted approach to the walk.
